Comfort Zone intervention trains teachers how to empower children to regulate their emotions.
Training for Teachers
Empower children to take responsibility to regulate their own emotions. I have trained teachers in both primary and secondary schools to do just that using my Comfort Zone intervention.
Many teachers agree that getting and keeping students calm and focussed is one of their most difficult tasks. Indeed Comfort Zone will be useful to support pupils with additional emotional and behavioural needs. Comfort Zone is a simple visual tool with resources to support it. Initial pilot data for Comfort Zone’s use with young people are promising and this is currently the subject of a more in depth research project.
